Kayden’s Korner

 

We have the deepest sympathy for Kayden’s mom, stepfather, grandfather, aunts and uncles, and we want to do all that we can to make sure no family suffers the same tragedy they have suffered.

Reforms proposed in Kayden’s Law

The family of Kayden Mancuso has proposed the following as part of their Kayden’s Law reforms:

  • Child advocacy, mandated mental evaluation and state psychological testing in family court. Court-appointed lawyer or “skilled” representative that would act as child advocate in custody proceedings. Adherence to expert testimony and require judges to incorporate expert testimony into their orders.
  • Increased education for Domestic Relations Office and judges on mental illness
  • Proven violent offenders be mandated to supervised visitation while receiving counseling. Domestic relations will provide follow up for proof of counseling or there would be a loss of privileges.
  • Emergency Child Endangerment Act. The creation of a mechanism that allows for family to seek immediate protection in an abuse case. At present, a request to modify a custody order is filed and can take six to eight weeks before the case is on the court schedule.
  • Constitutional change to the judge selection process (hire slow/fire fast). Proposes that a judge must have a yet-to-be-determined number of years experience in the field of law they preside over.
  • Reduction of term. Increase frequency of judicial retention elections from 10 to five years.
  • Greater accountability of judges
